Voters in New York reported a number of problems at polling locations during the state's primary on Thursday.
Some voters found themselves no longer on voter rolls, while others said they weren't able to vote after their party affiliation had been switched without their knowledge.
New York was holding primaries for governor and attorney general on Thursday, with polls set to close at 9:00 p.m.
Among those affected was Huffington Post editor-in-chief Lydia Polgreen who said in a tweet that her name had not been on voter rolls.
Meanwhile, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's son, Dante de Blasio, was also among those who found themselves not on the rolls, the mayor said.
Other voters on Thursday said they went to their polling locations to cast their votes, only to find out that they couldn't because their party had been switched without their permission.
Up-and-coming Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez retweeted a message from a Stony Brook professor saying some ballots for the attorney general race had been misprinted, which had caused confusion and led people to vote for more than one candidate in the race.
A snapshot of the ballot showed that the four candidates for attorney general had been split into two rows, creating confusion.
Ocasio-Cortez said her ballot did not look like the one the professor had posted, asking "Are New York ballots not standardized across the state?"
Cynthia Nixon, the former "Sex and the City" actress who is challenging Gov. Andrew Cuomo's (D), urged voters to call a voter protection hotline if they weren't on the rolls and were unsure what to do.
New York City has historically had issues with voter rolls. The New York Attorney Generals office found in 2016 that the city's board of elections had illegally taken about 200,000 names in 2014 and 2015 from voter rolls.
New York appears to be guilty of 'purging' their voting registry.
Democratic-NY seems to be guilty of every election dirty trick they blame Republicans of.
I live in Rome, NY, and the electronic machine was down. I was told to fill the ballot out, and insert it in the slot below where you would insert the ballot to be scanned by the machine.
Soros voting machines.
This happened to me years ago on the Upper East Side. Suddenly, my name was no longer on the books. Meanwhile, the floor was littered with absentee ballots. It is half fraud, half incompetence. As usual, it was elderly people - overwhelmed and undertrained - who were manning the polls.
That’s what happens when you vote for Bernie Sanders or Don Trump instead of Hillary.
Just declare the Democrats winners like they want. Who needs voting?
Paper ballots they have a photocopier on them where they copy your DL then you vote with it and it has your picture ID on it, later they inspect to make sure you didn’t vote Twice or fraudulently.
No real problem because the libtards always wins anyways in NY!
Voter fraud in New York? HOW CAN THAT HAPPEN?
One can only begin to imagine what lengths Soros and the RATS will go to in order to manipulate voting in the Midterms and especially in 2020!
About eight years ago we had the touch screen. I used the check feature and my vote had been flipped to democrat candidate for Governor. I did the entire thing over and it said republican, then I submitted it. Reports of that in 2016. I think they are Diabold. Have no clue if I voted republican. We have the paper ballot with pen and then put in the machine now.
Then they change them or toss them. I always ask now if the things are working before I vote. if they are not, I come back later.
Mayor’s son is named DANTE.......
Who’s running on the Republican ticket for governor?
Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro.
He’s running unopposed
NY State couldn’t dig up a Republican to run against him? That is really sad..
